Marijuana is not dangerous in any capacity beyond having an uncomfortable experience for an hour or two. Studies have shown results in it not having any long term negative effects, and should be treated as any other recreational substance, such as alcohol. Regulate it, educate people about it, make it as safe as possible. People who smoke it will smoke it regardless if it’s legal or not, clearly, so the best we can do it make it fair and safe. Studies have shown that regardless of the legalization status of marijuana, there isn’t a huge increase in smokers one way or the other. It’s not like once it’s legal all of a sudden everyone will try it. If you’re interested in it, chances are you’ll try it with how easily accessible it is, regardless if it’s legal or not. Stop punishing people for something that was made illegal in the first place due to institutional racism.
